Amazon Wedding Registry Tip: Knives

This week’s Amazon Wedding Registry Tip is only for those couples where no one has a bad temper! A good knife can make cooking easier, and safer! Quality cutlery is one of the most important parts of your new kitchen. Every time you cook, you'll likely require a knife--and perhaps not always the same one. Select sturdy, well-made knives. Just like your marriage, they'll last a lifetime. Knife Construction 101 Every knife has a blade, tang, and handle. Blades come in many sizes and are made of several materials. High-carbon stainless steel won't rust over time and will never stain. High-carbon steel holds a sharper edge but requires more care over the years to make sure the knife doesn't rust. Ceramic blades are light and extremely sharp, but you can't resharpen them at home. The length of the tang--the extension of the blade into the handle--is critical. Choose knives with full tangs to ensure sturdiness. Handles come in many shapes, so choose one that fits comfortably in your hand and is securely attached to the tang. Selecting Your Knives Knife sets can be a great way to start your cutlery collection. Choose a set that contains at least one chef's, carving, bread, and paring knife, as well as a sharpening steel, shears, and a multislot block. You may also want to add boning, utility, and steak knives and a cleaver if your set doesn't include them already. Additionally, serious cooks may need multiple sizes of chef's and paring knives. Cutting Board Basics You'll want at least one cutting board in your kitchen. Choose the largest one that fits within the allotted space in your kitchen. The more room you have to cut, the easier and safer it will be. Boards come in synthetic materials or wood, and each has its advantages. Synthetic materials are nonporous and stain-resistant, meaning you'll have a more sanitary kitchen if you adhere to proper cleanup. Some believe wood, however, is a better surface on which to cut. Whichever you choose, select a thick board that won't warp over time. Need more wedding registry tips? Just out of curiosity, who do you think will be doing the cooking in your marriage?
